Livin' la vida Essence.
Last night, we had the amazing opportunity to attend Essence’s release party for their new collection coming out soon! Essence is a Germany based company who eventually expanded into New York City and now Canada. This amazing company has not only affordable products but none of their cosmetics are tested on animals (which is a HUGE plus).
Not only did we get to see all the products up close, we got the chance to meet with other bloggers over some mojitos and cuban food (yum)! Thanks to Faulhaber Communications, we were able to spend a wonderful talking about our favourite topic, makeup!
We started off the night exploring the new makeup line that was beautifully placed on the table with a mojito in hand, how can it get any better than that? I loved the fact that we could touch and try out all the products and see which ones we loved, but who I am kidding they were all amazing. After many laughs, food and drinks, the night ended with us leaving with a generous Essence bag full of products from the new line! I swear I felt like a kid on Christmas and almost shed a tear.
Here are some of our favourite products that are in Essence’s new collection;
SHAPE & SHADOWS
Face contouring is so 2015 and it’s all about eye contouring now. With this amazing palette you can easily create a look that really accentuates the eyes. It includes a variety of eyeshadows, highlighters, a fixing wax and even a duo applicator to perfectly contour those beautiful eyes and brows! I absolutely love the eyeshadow colours in this palette because it makes my blue eyes really pop (and who could say no to a good highlighter?)
MAKE ME BROW
I’m pretty sure eyebrows have taken over the beauty world one eyebrow at a time. So naturally I couldn't wait to try out every eyebrow product in this new collection. The Make Me Brow duo powder is great to mix together to create that perfectly defined brow. You can use it to fill in the gaps and provides amazing long lasting coverage. I love the fact that there are two shades in each product, this way you're guaranteed to have the colour that best suits you and your brows!
MATT MATT MATT & LONG LASTING
It’s sometimes a struggle to find the perfect lipstick that is not only perfectly pigmented but lasts all day. Liquid lipsticks take a huge part in long lasting matte lipsticks but sometimes you need a good lipstick that will last through the day without having to re apply every 2 hours. I can honestly say I have never been so impressed by a lipstick. These two lipsticks are not only matte, but they last all day long! I also love the fact that it doesn't make your lips super dry. A definite must need purchase!
We hope you enjoy these products as much as we love them. You should definitely check them out and can find their products at a local Pharmaprix near you! Happy shopping!
